Severance Agreements

Severance agreements are employment contracts negotiated between employees and employers. These agreements often require employees to forfeit certain legal rights in exchange for compensation. When employers refuse to negotiate, however, many former employees end up with severance packages they feel are unfair.

Located in Scottsdale, Arizona, The Zoldan Law Group represents employees throughout the Phoenix metro area. Our attorneys will examine your severance package, explain your legal rights and help you negotiate a new agreement that adequately protects your interests. If negotiation does not result in a more beneficial agreement, we will take your case to court.

Obtaining Fair Severance Agreements

Severance agreements often contain a number of clauses spelling out your rights and responsibilities. Typical items included in an agreement include:

  • Confidentiality agreements

  • Noncompete agreements
  • Severance pay
  • Continuation of medical benefits
  • Release of claims against the employer
